Havelock board discusses parking in front of business

"If you do it for one, you have to do it for all," he said.

Commissioner Will Lewis said drivers needed to be educated about the parking rules.

"Do we educate them with a sign or with a letter?" he said.

Commissioner George Liner said the problem had arisen because the city was not strict enough.

Cyrus said 55 signs, placed between 100 and 150 feet apart, would be needed to cover the two miles of the service road. Commissioners balked at spending $10,000 toward signs until business owners could be written letters about parking.

"In 30 days we’re going to start writing tickets," Walsh said.

The board agreed to send letters out and revisit the issue during its Aug. 26 meeting.
